First Line: His car was worth a thousand pounds and more
Last Line: On my own little horse of wind and fire.
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Hate


His car was worth a thousand pounds and more,
A tall and glossy black silk hat he wore;
His clothes were pressed, like pretty leaves, when they
Are found in Bibles closed for many a day;
Until the birds I love dropped something that –
As white as milk, but thick as any cream –
Went pit, pit, pat! Right on his lovely hat!

Lead this unhappy poet to his car –
Where is his longing now, where his desire?
When left alone, I'll ride him to his grave,
On my own little horse of wind and fire.
